Unformatted text preview: simply fine tuning and rationalizations, while Paley’s argument is an answer. It relieves almost all doubt. It makes sense! When walking along a path, if one sees a watch, one can wonder at where it came from and come somewhere near the truth. But we don’t need to know the exact origin of the watch, who made it, or how it works, to understand that it came from some one . This argument is similar to other arguments in that the universe’s (watch’s) existence necessitates its creation and a creator. This is an overall stronger argument than the arguments that Davis presents. It is persuasive because it eliminates doubt. Davis’ arguments (and criticisms) are weaker because they present more doubts. The fact that his argument argues for intelligent design by such a small margin, it brings more doubt than agreement. What was to keep those molecules from getting just one degree hotter and not having a universe today? Sounds a little precarious to me....
